Electronic toll collection.

Electronic open-road toll collection.

For toll collection in free-flowing traffic, we apply a variety of technologies and combine them into smart systems. In addition to their high operational performance, these fully automated solutions help our customers to ensure mobility, thus assisting in preventing congestion and reducing pollution.

We offer complete solutions with a multi-technology approach for meeting all types of requirements, specific needs and regional considerations:

  • Satellite tolling (GNSS, or Global Navigation Satellite Systems) – On-Board Units with inbuilt satellite tracking for distance-based tolling and a wireless module for data transfer communication with the toll operator’s back office while driving. The distance-based toll is calculated either directly at the On-Board Unit (thick-client concept) or at the operator’s headquarters (thin-client concept).
     
  • Multi-lane free-flow tolling based on Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) or Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR).
    In case of DSRC technology, the on-board units or transponders in the vehicles communicate with transceivers via the DSRC radio standard (915 MHz, CEN 5.8 GHz, WAVE/G5 5.9 GHz, ISO 18000-63) in open-road (free-flow) toll collection.
    In case of ANPR technology, the vehicle number plate is read remotely using camera technology to determine whether the vehicle is required to pay the toll and, if so, to calculate the amount.
    Either way, the toll is recorded automatically without the vehicle having to stop.
     
  • Mobile tolling services – Smartphones keep forging ahead: Already numbering 2.6 billion devices worldwide, the number of smartphones is expected to reach 6.1 billion by 2020. Work, communication, information – intelligent mobile devices have already become closely integrated into most areas of our daily lives. And now, we are also using smartphones to facilitate toll collection.
     
  • eVignette - The eVignette is a modern and efficient way to collect time-based road user charges typically for passenger cars. It is a cost efficient alternative to existing paper vignette schemes widely in use in Europe. The evidence of the payment of the vignette fee is stored in a central database in a secure manner. eVignette verification can be highly automated, reducing operation costs and improving the compliance rate significantly.
